The joint opposition said today it was hoping to request the Committee on Public Accounts (COPA) to summon the Finance Ministry Secretary in connection with the recent newspaper advertisement comparing crude oil prices during the previous government and today.

JO MP and COPA member Bandula Gunawardena said the contents of the advertisement published by the Finance Ministry using public funds was false.

“During the previous government, the price of a barrel of crude oil always remained at more than US$100. Even recent Central Bank reports confirm these prices. However, the Finance Ministry advertisement says the price of a barrel of crude oil during the previous government was US$60. It is a blatant lie. It is tax payers money which had been misused to publish these fabricated data. As a COPA member I expect to request the Committee to summon Finance Ministry secretary on this matter,” he told a news briefing. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Lying on public money is unethical and uneconomical. The current government lucked out in January 2015 with the sharp drop in crude oil, instead using it to strengthen the economy they spent more and printed money on top that depreciating the SLR.

    No issue dear Bandula. Afterall you were the economist who said in 2015 that a Sri Lankan family of 4 can live on Rs 2500/- a month. So say no more.
